BAROQUE: Sartory Trio Emily Taylor. Kathy Wozniczka and Agnes Weinstein will perform in Port Lincoln next month.

The first concert this year will be a Sunday afternoon of baroque music.

The Port Lincoln Arts Council is bringing a baroque group, The Sartory Trio, to Port Lincoln for a concert in March.

The trio consists of Agnes Weinstein on baroque violin, Kathy Wozniczka on cello and Emily Taylor on baroque recorder.

Ms Weinstein graduated from the University of Adelaide and was a member of the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra for 15 years before moving to Townsville where she taught part time at James Cook University.

It was there she started playing chamber music and continued this in Wellington, Perth and Brisbane before moving back to Adelaide in 2010.

Baroque music had always been a great love and in 2013 she purchased a baroque violin and started to study the art of baroque playing.

She plays with Passionately Baroque, Telemann Girls, Sarto Trio,  Musick for Severall Friends as well as other informal groups.

Ms Wozniczka started music at an early age with lessons from her mother, a violinist and music teacher.

Her father played viola and she decided to play cello so that she could play trios with her parents.

She moved to Adelaide 20 years ago and continues her musical journey playing in Norwood and Burnside Symphony Orchestra and other chamber groups. She also teaches violin, cello, piano and mandolin.

Ms Taylor completed school at Seymour College in 2014 gaining an A plus in the SACE Solo Performance and Performance Special Study subjects on recorder.

In 2016, she completed a diploma in Instrumental Music on recorder at the Elder Conservatorium whilst studying a combined petroleum engineering and science degree at the University of Adelaide.

In 2018 she played in the SA History Festival in “Jane Austen’s Songs of the Sea”.

Ms Taylor plays recorder with Sarto Trio and renaissance ensemble, Musick for Severall Friends in Adelaide.

The musical program will feature combinations of the three instruments with music by a variety of composers from the 17th century, including Sammartini and Telemann.

The concert will be held in St Thomas Anglican Church on Sunday, March 3 at 2pm.

The supporting act will be a quintet from Cummins Area School conducted by the Cummins Area School music teacher, Scott McConnell.

The group will play well known chorales and a piece called Canon of Peace arranged by Paul Jennings.

Tickets are available at Port Lincoln Camera Centre. Eftpos facilities will be available for tickets sales at the door.

Please bring a plate of afternoon tea to share with the artists after the performance.

Tickets are $28 for an adult, $25 for concession or arts council members and $8 for students.
